Yes, they’re back.  Get ready for the third installment of the Baldur’s Gate video game with adventures featuring some of Dungeons & Dragon’s most beloved characters: ranger Minsc, and his miniature-giant space hamster Boo.  After decades spent in magical stasis, Minsc and Boo awaken in a Baldur’s Gate that is very different from the one they knew, but there will always be evil in need of smiting!  It’s all in the new IDW Publishing one-shot issue, Dungeons & Dragons: The Best of Minsc & Boo, including Boo off on his own adventure.

The Forgotten Realms have never been more fun, as the familiar setting continues to expand and flesh out fun characters like warrior Minsc and miniature giant space hamster Boo, half-elf/thief/poet Krydle, cleric Nerys Kathon, halfling rogue Shandie Freefoot, and Delina, the young moon elf wild magesorcerer, all in the pages of IDW comics.  Writer Jim Zub is back partnering with artist Max Dunbar in Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides IDW Publishing and Wizards of the Coast have brought forward the best from the D&D game books and card games, and combined good fantasy storytelling with classic artwork like you’d find in D&D manuals and great humor fantasy like Mike Wieringo’s Tellos.  It’s also the closest thing to Don Bluth’s video game Dragon’s Lair since Dragon’s Lair.  The latest D&D graphic novel and next adventure in Baldur’s Gate arrives in comic shops and online stores this week.

The Forgotten Realms have never been more fun.  Writer Jim Zub has partnered with artists Max Dunbar & John-Paul Bove, Nelson Daniel, Thiago Ribeiro, Milen Parvanov, and Glauber Matos in a huge compilation book, Dungeons & Dragons: Days of Endless Adventure IDW Publishing and Wizards of the Coast have brought forward the best from the D&D game books and card games, and combined good fantasy storytelling with classic artwork like you’d find in both D&D manuals or J.R.R. Tolkien’s magical worlds, with humor similar to Mike Wieringo’s Tellos.  Best yet, it features the Dungeon Mayhem’s Minsc and his trusty partner hamster Boo, meaning lots of bravery (and laughs) await you.
